Christmas Headaches

You know I told you last week how winging the pattern of a monster truck to make it look like Blaze (a monster truck from a kids TV show) didn’t work? Well … neither did following the pattern

It’s all twisty and weird and I officially give up … it is now December and I cannot be restarting this same thing for a third time. Sorry Blaze … I may come back to you during the less busy Summer months. For future reference does anyone know where I can find a decent monster truck pattern?

So … here is my new FINAL list:

Three items done (and wrapped) …

… Two in progress …

… Two to go …

… all in 24 days … I CAN DO THIS!

The Dinosaur (which is replacing Blaze) and Lamb (for our newborn nephew) were both in magazines I have. Yay for spending an evening browsing these inspirational pretty pages to give me a boost.

The Dinosaur is a pattern by Becky Garratt that appeared in Simply Crochet issue 21. I’ve n0t decided which one to make yet, but they are both super cute.

The Lamb was featured in #crochet magazine issue 01, but is from the book Edward’s Menagerie by Kerry Lord. I love the interesting look of his woolly coat and am looking forward to seeing how that is created.

There’s my update for the week – plenty of Christmas Craft Restarting among the hen madness of the weekend.

    Ugh. Isn’t it the worst when a pattern doesn’t work out. I checked Pinterest for a monster truck with no luck. That triceratops is adorable though. I’m sure that he would love either one.

      The triceratops was my fave too … and he has now been made. The monster truck has been reserved a place in the bin! Maybe I’ll try again after Christmas šŸ™‚

  5. What a shame about the truck šŸ˜¦ The lamb and dinosaurs are so cute, I think I saved the dinosaur pattern for my boys and had forgotten all about them!
